A study in rodents found that consuming the equivalent of 6-8 cups of coffee per day protected them from developing multiple sclerosis. While the researchers caution that caffeine may not work the same way in adults, the study is promising. Research already suggests that drinking coffee has its health benefits: helping to prevent Parkinson’s Disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s Disease. Plus, those of us who love coffee find that a nice cup of coffee can make any morning, afternoon, or even evening a little better.
So next time you feel like coffee, have some, and enjoy not only the taste, but the health benefits. Just remember: good old-fashioned home-brewed coffee is just as healthy as the $3.00/cup stuff at Starbucks.
